Derrick Rose suffers sprained ankle in Chicago Bulls win

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose suffers a sprained ankle against the Indiana Pacers but is confident that he will not face a long spell on the sidelines.

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose was forced off the court with a sprained ankle in Monday's 96-95 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

Rose appeared to roll his ankle while attempting to stay inbounds midway through the fourth quarter, but despite the threat of another spell on the sidelines, the 2011 MVP was upbeat about the setback.

"All of it's positive," Rose, who recorded 23 points, six assists and two rebounds before suffering the injury, told reporters."For what I went through and all I've been through, just me playing and feeling all right after the game.

"Of course my ankle's a little bit sore, but I'm just happy nothing's not tore or broken. So I'll be all right."

The Bulls return to action against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday.
